Majorie Taylor Greene files a petition to Congress to fire Dr. Fauci, the petition statement read;
Dr. Anthony Fauci has continually failed to provide Americans with accurate information about the COVID–19 pandemic and has shown distrust in the American private sector and American ingenuity.
In March 2020, Dr. Fauci told Americans not to wear masks, noting: “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.
are in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it is not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.
And often, there are unintended consequences—people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.”
Now, more than a year later, he is telling Americans to continue quarantining as much as possible and to wear a mask, maybe even into the year 2022.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the vaccines have been “highly effective” at preventing infection. Research from Johns Hopkins Medicine has shown that the vaccine is 95 percent effective, and also works to prevent serious illness in the 1 in 20 people who may contract COVID–19 after being vaccinated.
Over 100,000,000 vaccines have now been administered, and some studies show that those who have already contracted COVID–19 may only need 1 dose of the vaccine to prevent reinfection rather than the 2 prescribed.
Despite these outcomes and his previous comments, Dr. Fauci has reversed course and is now sounding the alarm on COVID–19 variants, commenting:
“The way we can counter [the UK variant], which is a growing threat in our country, is to do two things: to get as many people vaccinated as quickly and as expeditiously as possible with the vaccine that we know works against this variant and, finally, to implement the public health measures that we talk about all the time . . . masking, physical distancing and avoiding congregant settings, particularly indoors.”.
The petition also demanded for his salary to be slashed, stating that he earns way more than every federal worker, including the president.
The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci, M.D., earned $434,312 in 2020
